Pianist Jan Lisiecki has won acclaim for his extraordinary interpretive maturity, distinctive sound, and poetic sensibility. The New York Times has called him “a pianist who makes every note count.” An alumnus of The Royal Conservatory’s Glenn Gould School, Lisiecki’s insightful interpretations, refined technique, and natural affinity for art give him a musical voice that belies his age. The remarkable musician made his debut in the main auditorium at New York’s Carnegie Hall in January 2016. In its rave review, The New York Times noted that it was an “uncommonly sensitive performance.”
Baritone Matthias Goerne has appeared on the world’s principal opera stages, including the Metropolitan Opera in New York; the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden; Teatro Real in Madrid; Paris National Opera; and the Vienna State Opera. His artistry has been documented on numerous recordings, many of which have received prestigious awards, including four Grammy nominations, an ICMA award, and recently the Diapason d’or arte. In 2017, he was honoured with the OVoal Award from both BBC Music Magazine and Gramophone.
This concert is part of The Royal Conservatory’s two-season Beethoven 250 Festival.
